EMS Media Awards
In 2022, two outstanding projects are honoured with the EMS Outreach and Communication Award: The ExtremeWeatherCongress, Germany, and the Podcast De Weerman, The Netherlands. They both fulfil communication needs on climate issues and are valuable tools to communicate weather and climate information. The contributions keep on living in the internet, and interested people can find them.

EMS Technology Achievement Award
The EMS Technology Achievement Award 2022 for significant technology achievements and innovations in the field of meteorology and earth observation is this year awarded to the Weather Observation Website (WOW) Project . The accessibility to near real time weather observations and photographs assists forecasters in providing more accurate and timely warning systems and enables first responders to prepare for extreme events in good time – thereby lessening the impacts on lives and property. It also stimulates the public to take part in weather and climate science because of its open data policy. It has the potential to increase the general interest in and knowledge about weather factors and how forecasts and warnings are issued. Not just by welcoming private weather station observations, but, for instance, WOW for Schools could offer an important contribution to such knowledge if spread to more countries. In other words: It is really “citizen science”.
A partner of the WOW project will give the award presentation in Session ES1.6 Open Data – data, application development, impact on Monday , 05 Sep, 16:00 (CEST) | Room HS 2
EMS Silver Medal
Elena Mateescu will receive the EMS Silver Medal 2022. This award recognizes her lifelong scientific contribution to the field of agrometeorology, her outstanding services to the European meteorological community, as well as her leading and coordinating research at national and European levels.
The Silver Medal ceremony, which includes a Silver Medal Lecture by the Laureate, takes place on Monday evening in the Awards Session: Mon, 05 Sep, 18:00–19:00 (CEST).
The laudation will be given by Tanja Cegnar, Slovenian Environment Agency, and chair of the EMS Media and Communication Committee.
